Bribe Cops and Get Blinded by Lasers in Free iOS Game 'Airlift'!

Posted: Jan 12, 2016 11:17 pm | Apps Press Releases | Stock Ticker: NASDAQ:AAPL, NASDAQ:GOOG



Airlift Game, the first release from new studio Agent Argyle, takes a non-violent approach to the classic helicopter rescue genre (e.g. "Choplifter").


In Airlift, you're a contractor, getting paid to exfiltrate secret agents whose covers have been blown. Tilt your device to fly the helicopter, dodging obstacles like blimps, birds and blinding lasers. If the secret police show up before you rescue all your agents, you'll have to bribe them with some of your earnings to set the agents free and avoid further calamity...



  • No Guns: Airlift eschews tanks and guns for bird strikes and blinding laser pointers that really do hamper vision temporarily. (So, we don't suggest playing in the dark.)
  • Simple Controls: Players simply tilt their device to control the helicopter. The accelerometer has been dampened to ensure smooth flying.
  • Bribery Dilemma: Players must choose whether or not to bribe the secret police when their agents are captured. Each choice comes with its own set of perils and rewards.
